El Vez in Midtown Village is huge and kind of looks like the inside of the Please Touch museum, with brightly colored walls and a bicycle hanging from the ceiling. So it’s probably not the best idea for a casual weeknight dinner with a friend, but it’s definitely worthwhile for certain situations - like Happy Hour margaritas or a 30th birthday dinner. They serve upscale Mexican food, and we like their tacos quite a bit, but it’s definitely on the expensive side.
